Best Crossover/SUV Touring All-Season Tires in Size 275/55R20

Wednesday, July 23, 2014 by Gary Stanley

On-/Off-Road All-Terrain tires are common for those looking for aggressive tread patterns and some off-road traction. However, many drivers aren't looking for off-road traction and instead drive mostly on the street. These drivers would rather have a tire with a smoother and quieter ride with longer wear. This is what makes tires in the Crossover/SUV Touring All-Season category so appealing to them. The best two options in this category for tire size 275/55R20 are the Continental CrossContact LX20 with EcoPlus Technology and Bridgestone Dueler H/L Alenza.

If winter traction isn't a priority for you based on the area you live in, I'd suggest the Bridgestone Dueler H/L Alenza for its smooth, quiet ride and outstanding wet traction. Are you going to experience winter conditions while on the road? Are you concerned about snow traction? You don't have to sacrifice much in the way of snow traction when you purchase the Continental CrossContact LX20 with EcoPlus Technology. It provides very good snow traction for an all-season tire, even better than some all-terrain tires.

The CrossContact LX20 with EcoPlus Technology is currently ranked first in our tire survey results. It has the highest ratings in the following areas compared to other options in the Crossover/SUV Touring All-Season category:

  • Hydroplaning resistance
  • Wet traction
  • Light snow traction
  • Ride comfort

What is there to say, those tires have been through everything from extreme heat conditions to cold sleet snow and I have yet to have a problem out of the tires! They truly HELD UP! If you take the time to take care of your these tires, you'll get the most bang for your buck, in my opinion. Even the guy replacing my tires said they were remarkable, of course he didn't recommend that I go that many miles again on the same tires. The grid in the tires were just about gone, so It was DEFINITELY TIME to replace. Also, add, that I've had to get a plug on the same tire twice around 67,000 miles. I'm strict when it comes to servicing my car, meaning every 5,000 I rotated the tires and did everything else around that to ensure my tires would last. This is one tire I can recommend for off-road because I carry heavy equipment on the occasion and well as a mud ride every once in a while.The highway and city is where most of my days w/ my vehicle tires were spent! As I type, I'm at a tire place getting another set put on! RECOMMENDING This tire to anyone looking for a great long-lasting tire.
